Kung Fu Hustle

One of April's Volunteers of the Month is Melody, who has chosen 2004's Kung Fu Hustle — the apex of acclaimed comic mind Stephen Chow.

When the hapless Sing (Stephen Chow) and his dim-witted pal Bone (Lam Chi-chung) try to scam the residents of Pig Sty Alley into thinking they're members of the dreaded Axe Gang, the real gangsters descend on this Shanghai slum to restore their fearsome reputation. What gang leader Brother Sum (Danny Chan Kwok-kwan) doesn't know is that three legendary retired kung fu masters live anonymously in this decrepit neighborhood and don't take kindly to interlopers.

A maximalist stroke of cinematic genius that pays homage to a plethora of works, Kung Fu Hustle is perhaps as entertaining as contemporary cinema can get.
